Yes, the VMware Converter can do this.  It'll create a VM from a disk image.

No one has mentioned the Windows Virtual PC, a Microsoft product,
that lets you run Windows XP apps in a virtual environment under
Windows 7 Pro, letting XP apps run in their natural window on
the 7 desktop, or you can run the virtual XP machine desktop
in its own window.

It will also run Windows 98, with a few gotchas:
